tpstar: <Men In Bun> Is that the new Will Smith movie? I believe Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu has been known to bun it up. <Man buns are taking over the world> Hide your kids, hide your wife ...

tpstar: <Carlsen just walking around on stage, doesn't even have shirt tucked in.> This is called "modeling" in modern parlance.
 
   Apr-24-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
 
tpstar: Chairman, in recognition of this poster's continued flouting of the PITA principles by enabling pointless trollery, I move that he must be nice to <diceman> for the duration of the Gashimov Memorial.
 
   Apr-24-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
tpstar: The disconnect is that we are watching a world class invitational tournament dedicated to Vugar Gashimov who died last year at age 27, and this is the second Gashimov Memorial which has attracted elite players both times. Meanwhile Fischer's relative importance to the chess world is ...

tpstar: tpstar-baerliwiesau (FICS 4/24/15): Welcome to the jungle (1. e4 e5), we've got fun and games (2. Nf3 d6)/ We got everything you want (3. d4 Nd7), honey we know the names (4. Bc4 h6!?)/We are the people that can find (5. de de) whatever you may need (6. Bxf7+!? Kxf7)/If you got the ...
 
   Apr-23-15 M Ivic vs A Xylogiannopoulos, 2013
 
tpstar: 10. Ne2 is an interesting idea, preparing 11. Qg3 raiding Black's Kingside and inducing 11 ... Kf8 (11 ... 0-0? 12. Bh6) giving Black a bad game off the bat. White played well in the RRB vs RRB ending, then 39. Bc5 wins material.
 
   Apr-23-15 A M Fluck vs J Diehle, 2000
 
tpstar: Black to Play and Win after 8. d3. The only database game with 6. Nf6+!? gxf6 and Black keeps the extra Pawn.
 
   Apr-23-15 V Vepkhvishvili vs E Mikaelian, 1974
 
tpstar: White to Play and Win after 24 ... hxg6. In the Sicilian Kan after 4 ... a6 5. Bd3 Nc6, White should play 6. Be3 = Opening Explorer

  kellmano: <OCF> Did you check out the link of the blitz he provided? You don't have to be a chess player to realise that the position is unbelievable.
Jan-06-15
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, and Carlsen putting his head in his arms TWICE was unbelievable.

  tpstar: <whiteshark> Thanks for voting!

So far we have all chosen a different game for #1. ;>D

Your one nomination will get 10 points. You may choose up to nine more games by January 14, if you like; just put them in order please.

<Eyal> We Will We Will Bok-Yu!

Jan-07-15  FairyPromotion: <OhioChessFan: Of course one point of this voting is to [...] show great games that might have been overlooked.>

Exactly! Games by top players in top tournaments get our attention one way or the other. But there are still many gems in lower category events, national championships, opens, team competitions, women chess, and even in rapid/blitz events. I always come back to check others people's votes, and each year there were a few superb games that I had missed. For example B Bok vs W Spoelman, 2014 seems really special.

BTW tpstar, Carlsen vs S Osinovsky, 2014 is now in the database. (:

  tpstar: <FairyPromotion> Wow, Osinovsky played a beautiful game to upset Carlsen. That is easily "Osinovsky's Immortal" for your Game Collection. Do you know him personally?

Hurry so you can make the first post on that game. =)

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yes, hurry, I even deleted what would have been the first post.
Jan-07-15  FairyPromotion: Thx a lot guys!

tpstar, no I don't know him personally. The game was played in a simul event organized by a chess site, and I gave the source in my post where I asked chessgames to upload this game. Neither me, nor my friend that told me about the game, don't know any titled players personally.

OCF, I feel bad that you deleted your post. I'm not really a believer that first post itself has a lot of meaning. I could have posted there before making my post here, but I wanted to prepare some analysis, and make a more useful post. Nevertheless I thank you for being thoughtful. Even though you shouldn't have deleted it, that's very kind of you. :)
